Some refer to País as the Gamay of Chile; it’s fresh and juicy, with a slightly herbaceous edge. Matorral from González Bastías is a wine with hidden depths. The grapes come from low-yielding 200-year-old vines, and the wine combines youthful vibrancy with incredibly concentrated fruit. It reveals layers of complexity, with soft red berry fruit and tingling acidity giving way to a wild earthy minerality.
